    “Journalists” are Now Firmly Committed to the Profession of Producing Commercials for Crooks. Just when one would assume that the American media mafia had no more room to stick their heads up their ass, a nouveau moron from CNN has added yet another piece of garbage to the stinking ship which was once a proud profession: investigative reporting. In early February 2015, CNN (who Ted Turner founded and left because the network has become a not so laughable joke) hired Morgan Spurlock, a sub-clinical moron and failed movie maker, to drive another nail into the death of thoughtful journalism, into the...

    In an interview with Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul that aired on Sunday, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd noted that he has a tendency to get prickly with reporters. “This has been men and women, by the way,” Todd noted. That clarity was not apparent this past week when Democrats and reporters alike advanced the slanderous narrative that Paul reserved his testiness exclusively for women. This, they added, was an unattractive trait that might be rooted in a lack of respect for the female gender. “He’s got to be careful here,” Todd told his colleague Andrea Mitchell. “This is...

A new infographic to promote the Drudge Report to advertisers uses statistics to show that no other website refers more traffic than Drudge to CNN, Fox, Washington Post, New York Times, AP, Politico and even the Daily Mail. "Drudge has a profound effect on America's premier news outlets: it's the top source for referral traffic to industry powerhouses like Fox News, CNN, The Wall Street Journal, the Associated Press, and Reuters among others.

    You know, the Ten Commandments, it says you can’t commit adultery; it says you need to honor your father and mother. If someone didn’t honor their parents or commit adultery, would you serve them?” This question was posed by CNN reporter Gary Tuchman to Georgia florist Melissa Jeffcoat, who had previously said she’d refuse to service a homosexual commitment ceremony. When she answered affirmatively and was pressed on why (supposedly) she’d serve adulterers and those dishonoring their parents but not homosexuals, she replied, “It’s just a different kind of sin to me. I just don’t believe in it.” Tuchman surely...

Barkley’s recent comments regarding the fabricated controversy over Indiana’s religious freedom bill is a perfect example of the latter. From the Hill “America’s always had a racial problem,” Barkley told CNN’s Chris Cuomo late Thursday evening. “Now we have a homophobic problem,” he continued. “Any form of discrimination, you have to check it.” Barkley added that Indiana’s latest legislation...

    It turns out some Muslim-owned bakeries are no more willing to create wedding cakes for same-sex ceremonies than their Christian counterparts. Conservative podcast host Steven Crowder posted hidden-camera video Thursday showing employees at several Muslim-owned bakeries in Dearborn, Michigan, declining his business or referring him to other shops when he asked for a wedding cake with the message “Ben and Steven forever.” Which was fine with Mr. Crowder. “I’m not even saying these Muslim bakeries shouldn’t have a right to do whatever they did — they absolutely should — and many more of them would than Christian bakeries,” he said...

The former NBA player, who is from Alabama originally, sneered, "All these rednecks hide behind the Bible. That's what they do. That's one of the reason the south is behind in everything. They always hide behind the Bible. It's strictly about discrimination." Complaining about the lack of gay people invited to discuss the Indiana law, Barkley lamented, "We got some of these religious nut jobs" speaking out. Cuomo did not interrupt...

Al-Abadi, who is also the top military commander, said on state television that the city was liberated. Tikrit had been under ISIS control since June. The push into Tikrit comes days after a series of U.S.-led airstrikes targeted ISIS targets around the city. The airstrikes made it possible for the Iraqi forces to move through the city. Troops reported finding dozens of roadside bombs and booby-trapped buildings as they combed the city. At a Cabinet...

Bash tried to smack Cruz around by comparing him to Obama (funny, she didn’t have a problem with the current president having no executive or much political experience when he ran for the White House in 2008), hoping it would silence and embarrass the senator from Texas. She got a healthy dose of “you’ve got to be kidding” me instead. Two years in the Senate, not much experience...

How do you have a two-state solution when you don’t have a partner in that solution, when you don’t have a partner for peace, when you’ve got a — when the other state is vowing to wipe you off the face of the earth?” Boehner added, “I think the animosity exhibited...

    Chuck Schumer is set to get a big promotion -- and that's welcome news to Wall Street. The veteran Democratic senator from New York is widely expected to take Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid's job when he retires at the end of 2016. Reid, who announced he would not be running for reelection Friday morning, quickly endorsed his New York colleague for the role. Schumer's ascension to the top Democratic position in the Senate -- and even possibly to Senate majority leader if his party regains control of the chamber -- is a boon for the finance and business communities,...

Like Lahren, many of its news anchors and reporters are young. And for now, it airs no commercials. The network may want to emulate Fox's success, but it's taking a very different path to get there.

CNN was quite obviously setting up a Narrative to explain and gloat over what polls said was almost certain to be a Netanyahu defeat. A funny...

Investigators have not offered any conclusive explanation as to what happened to the plane after it vanished from radar, leaving plenty of opportunities for crazy theories to gain ground.

Chief Justice Roy Moore likened an eventual U.S. Supreme Court ruling in favor of same-sex marriage to the Dred Scott ruling and Plessy v.

They come from man... That’s your faith, that’s my faith, but that’s not our country. Our laws come from collective agreement and compromise.”

On the low end of things, CNN’s Barbara Starr recently reported that “U.S. intelligence estimates that ISIL has a total force of somewhere between 9,000 to 18,000 fighters.” In late 2014, the CIA’s estimate of ISIL’s numbers was slightly higher, as its analysts assessed that the group had between 20,000 and 31,500 fighters between its Iraq and Syria holdings. Other estimates are far higher. Rami Abdel Rahman, the director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, has said...

    After a video of the brutal killing of Jordanian pilot Mouath al-Kasaesbeh came to light on Tuesday, Fareed Zakaria appeared on Jake Tapper’s “The Lead” to emphasize the “un-Islamic” nature of the killing. Zakaria, however, failed to explain how the ISIS fighters appear to have relied on an ancient Islamic law of retribution to justify their actions.

    MSNBC registered its lowest full-day rating in nearly a decade on Tuesday, a devastatingly low benchmark that shows just how severe the network's decline has become. The liberal cable news network drew an average of 55,000 viewers in the all-important 25-to-54 year-old demo on Tuesday, its lowest full-day rating since July 2005, according to Nielsen ratings provided by an industry source. CNN had nearly three times as many viewers in the demo; Fox News nearly five times as many. That low reflects a more general decline in recent years.

    Washington (CNN)White House officials pressured Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel to increase the pace of detainee transfers from the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay, the outgoing secretary acknowledged to CNN's Barbara Starr in an interview Friday. "Not everyone at the White House has agreed with me," said Hagel of his methodology for deciding on detainee releases. Disagreements between Hagel and officials in the President's inner circle have been widely reported during his short tenure as secretary of defense. But in his interview with CNN, Hagel spoke with uncharacteristic candor about friction related to the prisoner release. "We've had a lot...

    Hillary Clinton plans to improve her relationship with the press for 2016, and her choice of Tom Nides as a top campaign official could be a good start. He is married to a top executive of CNN. Politico’s Mike Allen reports that Tom Nides, who was formerly Hillary Clinton’s deputy secretary of state, will be leaving his vice chairman position at Morgan Stanley for a top role in Clinton’s 2016 campaign. Unmentioned by Allen is that Nides is the longtime husband of Virginia Moseley, who has been the vice president and deputy Washington bureau chief for CNN since 2012.

    Pay no attention to the president behind the curtain. Instead we want you to focus entirely upon an utterly powerless prince that we are shining the bright lights upon. Despite the fact that other news outlets are bringing up the name of a certain former president we want you to look only at Prince Andrew of Great Britain. Got that? And if you haven't then we will overwhelm you with Prince Andrew mentions whenever we report on the Sex Fiend Island scandal. Such seems to be the attitude of CNN. Although other news outlets, such as Time, have not refrained...

    With its ratings at an all-time low and its journalistic ethics almost constantly under fire, left-wing CNN is once again conceding it can no longer compete as a serious news organization with the revelation Wednesday that the production of a game show is under way. Rumors surfaced in December that CNN chief Jeff Zucker might go this way. TV Newser confirmed the humiliating news today. ... 2014 might have been the worst year for CNN of any news outlet in recent memory. We’re only 21 days into the new year, but 2015 is already shaping up to be worse.

    Colorado Springs, Colo. — From the liberal media’s coverage of my beautiful adopted hometown, you’d think we live in a KKK-infested hotbed where every person of color fears for his or her life. Take a look at these ominous headlines: “Bombing of NAACP headquarters harkens to bad old days” — MSNBC “Colorado Springs explosion recalls violence against NAACP” — the Washington Post “NAACP Bombing Evokes Memories of Civil Rights Strife” — Time magazine “Explosion outside NAACP office could be a hate crime, officials say” — the Los Angeles Times Let me and my brown skin assure you, America: Bull Connor...

    DUBAI - A Saudi journalist and a member of the royal family denied rumors on Thursday that King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, in hospital since December suffering from pneumonia, had died, according to messages on social media. "All that is being reported about King Abdullah's death is far from the truth," Ibrahem al-Rawsa, identified as a journalist at state-run Saudi Press Agency, wrote on his Twitter account. A member of the royal family wrote: "I give you good news. The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques is fine and there is no truth to the rumors going around." He was referring...

    The militant Islamic State group (ISIS) is reportedly readying the launch of a 24/7 news channel to spread its jihadist propaganda. According to Variety, the tech-savvy terrorists posted two Arabic-language teasers for an upcoming channel that will be called the Islamic Caliphate Broadcast. Both featured slick images and promised in-depth video, Variety reports. The new channel is expected to feature a new video series by British captive John Cantile, who has already made several videos for the Islamic State, and a daily news program, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz has reported. Also scheduled is "Time to Recruit," a program aimed at...

    CNN’s Max Foster interviewed Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal over the weekend. He grilled Jindal on so-called “no-go zones.” Pay attention to what Jindal actually said, as documented by CNN. Jindal was also unable to offer examples during an earlier interview with CNN’s Max Foster, saying that he’s “heard from folks here that there are neighborhoods where women don’t feel comfortable going in without veils … We all know that there are neighborhoods where police are less likely to go into.” “I think that the radical Left absolutely wants to pretend like this problem is not here. Pretending it’s not here...
